Both the Fascinate and Galaxy S use 802.11n Wi-Fi, and each features a five megapixel camera with 720p video recording. Both phones also use Samsung's custom interface on top of Android, with Samsung's Social Hub software. The Samsung Fascinate on Verizon Wireless will get Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities, in addition to a slew of Verizon's own branded services, including the V Cast Music with Rhapsody store, V Cast Video, VZ Navigator and Visual Voice Mail, among others.
